Nicaragua - Granada

The final stop on our vacation was Granada - the oldest colonial city in North America.  We took the Che Guevara ferry back from Ometepe to the mainland, and then drove up to Granada.  After refueling with some more maduros (fried plantains), we headed out to check out the city.  We enjoyed a tour of the city by horse-drawn carriage, including visits to several beautiful churches, and a museum.  We also took an afternoon trip to the nearby Apoyo Volcano crater lake - where we spent a lot of time swimming back and forth to a raft in the wonderfully warm water (and where Mommy and Daddy both jumped in off a high dock).  We had some fun meals, including eating outdoors while watching a break-dancing crew performing in the street.  We also visited the local market and saw huge piles of the fruits we'd been enjoying throughout our visit.
